First look: Rishi Kapoor in Mulk

October 17, 2017 12:36 IST

The actor dons yet another a new avatar.

We can't decide whether we love Rishi Kapoor, the chocolate boy lover hero, or the Rishi Kapoor we are seeing now -- who does not hesitate one bit before taking on the most unusual characters.

Like women's trafficker Rauf Lala in Agneepath. A notorious gangster Goldman, based on Dawood, in D-Day. A wheelchair-bound grandfather in Kapoor & Sons. And Amitabh Bachchan's 75-year-old son in 102 Not Out, which is scheduled to release on December 1.

Now, he will be seen in yet another interesting avatar in Anubhav Sinha's Mulk.

Mulk went on floors a few days ago and the actor, who has a pivotal role in the film, shared his look on Twitter. The picture shows a bearded Rishi dressed in a white kurta and grey jacket, wearing an extremely sombre expression.

Neena Gupta will play his wife.

The film also stars Taapsee Pannu, Prateik Babbar and Rajat Kapur.


Mulk is a social thriller set around a joint family that hails from a small town in India who want to reclaim their honour after being embroiled in a controversy.

The film will be shot in Varanasi and Lucknow and is scheduled to release early next year.
